Virtual Iron Founder to Present at Virtualization Conference & Expo

While server virtualization promises great advantages and ROI, to date, it has been too expensive and too complex

While server virtualization promises great advantages and ROI, to date, available solutions have been too expensive and too complex, especially for organizations with tight budgets and limited staff. Today, with the help of emerging industry standards and open source technologies, all the benefits of server virtualization are available to organizations of all sizes. This session will discuss how these technologies are changing the price/performance equation and helping organizations of all sizes take server virtualization to the next level. The presenter, one of the pre-eminent experts in the industry, will highlight how companies of all sizes are leveraging the latest server virtualization technologies to:

• Improve the utilization of their x86 systems and hardware
• Optimize their development and test processes
• Provision new systems in minutes instead of hours
• Automate load balancing and capacity management
• Leverage policy-based capabilities for automatic system failover
• Conduct system maintenance without disrupting running systems
• Support business continuity and disaster recovery scenarios with less hardware

Sponsor SOA World / Virtualization Conference & Expo

Service-oriented architectures (SOAs) have evolved over the past few years out of the original vision of loosely coupled web services replacing constrained, stovepiped applications throughout enterprise IT. Every major enterprise technology vendor today has developed its own SOA strategy, supported by innumerable mid-size companies and start-ups offering specific SOA aspects or entire solutions. This explosive growth in SOA technology is in response to a global demand--IDC estimates that spending on SOA services alone will grow from $8.6 billion to more than $33 billion by 2010.
